Top Ten Unexplained Phenomenon

Science is the only accepted way which can help us to understand nature and its mystery. However here are top ten unexplained phenomenon science seem unable to explain them:

The Body/Mind Connection

Medical science is only beginning to understand the ways in which the mind influences the body. The placebo effect, for example, demonstrates that people can at times cause a relief in medical symptoms or suffering by believing the cures to be effective – whether they actually are or not. Using processes only poorly understood, the body’s ability to heal itself is far more amazing than anything modern medicine could create.

Psychic powers and ESP

Psychic powers and extra-sensory perception (ESP) rank among the top ten unexplained phenomena if for no other reason than that belief in them is so widespread. Many people believe that intuition is a form of psychic power, a way of accessing arcane or special knowledge about the world or the future. Researchers have tested people who claim to have psychic powers, though the results under controlled scientific conditions have so far been negative or ambiguous. Some have argued that psychic powers cannot be tested, or for some reason diminish in the presence of skeptics or scientists. If this is true, science will never be able to prove or disprove the existence of psychic powers.

Near-Death Experiences and Life After Death

People who were once near death have sometimes reportedvarious mystical experiences (such as going into a tunnel and emerging in a light, being reunited with loved ones, a sense of peace, etc.) that may suggest an existence beyond the grave. While such experiences are profound, no one has returned with proof or verifiable information from “beyond the grave.” Skeptics suggest that the experiences are explainable as natural and predictable hallucinations of a traumatized brain, yet there is no way to know with certainty what causes near-death experiences, or if they truly are visions of “the other side.”


There is no doubt that UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) exist – many people see things in the skies that they cannot identify, ranging from aircraft to meteors. Whether or not any of those objects and lights are alien spacecraft is another matter entirely; given the fantastic distances and effort involved in just getting toEarth from across the universe, such a scenario seems unlikely. Still, while careful investigation has revealed known causes for most sighting reports, some UFO incidents will always remain unexplained.

Deja vu

Deja vu is a French phrase meaning ‘already seen,’ referring to the distinct, puzzling, and mysterious feeling of having experienced a specific set of circumstances before. A woman might walk into a building, for example, in a foreign country she’d never visited, and sense that the setting is eerily and intimately familiar. Some attribute deja vu to psychic experiences or unbidden glimpses of previous lives. As with intuition (see #3), research into ,human psychology can offer more naturalistic explanations, but ultimately the cause and nature of the phenomenon itself remains a mystery.


From the Shakespeare play “MacBeth” to the NBC show “Medium,” spirits of the dead have long made an appearance in our culture and folklore. Many people have reported seeing apparitions of both shadowy strangers and departed loved ones. Though definitive proof for the existence of ghosts remains elusive, sincere eyewitnesses continue to report seeing,photographing, and even communicating with ghosts. Ghostinvestigators hope to one day prove that the dead can contact the living, providing a final answer to the mystery.

Mysterious Disappearances

People disappear for various reasons. Most are runaways, some succumb to accident, a few are abducted or killed, but most are eventually found. Not so with the truly mysterious disappearances. From the crew of the Marie Celeste to Jimmy Hoffa, Amelia Earhart, and Natalee Holloway, some people seem to have vanished without a trace. When missing persons are found, it is always through police work, confession, or accident never by ‘psychic detectives’). But when the evidence is lacking and leads are lost, even police and forensic science can’t always solve the crime.


Whether we call it gut feelings, a ‘sixth sense,’ or something else, we have all experienced intuition at one time or another. Of course, gut feelings are often wrong (how many times during aircraft turbulence have you been sure your plane was going down?), but they do seem to be right much of the time. Psychologists note that people subconsciously pick up information about the world around us, leading us to seemingly sense orknow information without knowing exactly how or why we know it. But cases of intuition are difficult to prove or study, and psychology may only be part of the answer.


For decades, large, hairy, manlike beasts called Bigfoot have occasionally been reported by eyewitnesses across America. Despite the thousands of Bigfoot that must exist for a breeding population, not a single body has been found. Not one has been killed by a hunter, struck dead by a speeding car, or even died of natural causes. In the absence of hard evidence like teeth or bones, support comes down to eyewitness sightings andambiguous photos and films. Since it is logically impossible to prove a universal negative, science will never be able to prove that creatures like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster do notexist, and it is possible that these mysterious beasts lurk far from prying eyes.

The Taos Hum

Some residents and visitors in the small city of Taos, New Mexico, have for years been annoyed and puzzled by a mysterious and faint low-frequency hum in the desert air. Oddly, only about 2 percent of Taos residents report hearing the sound. Some believe it is caused by unusual acoustics; others suspect mass hysteria or some secret, sinister purpose. Whether described as a whir, hum, or buzz and whether psychological,natural, or supernatural no one has yet been able to locate the sound’s origin.

  1. Well, The Intuition item has already been proven by the big insurance companies. For many years, the insurance companies did very detailed studies of disasters, which they end up paying a fortune to the victims of, and they found out that, as a stastistical constant, there are ALWAYS people who get stomach carmaps, bad vibes, pure fear, or whatever before the train wreck, airplane crash, and 9/11, and stay home, and avoid the disasters and survive. Apparently, the latent ESP or natural intuition in humanity manifested to save them from these disasters. So, ESP or intutition is a reality. But HOW and WHY it works neither the insurance companies or anyone else seems to know.

    Since everyone hears and is blind to different frequencie, any noise heard by some and not others is not unusual. Some people can hear dog whistles and one can prove they hear in that frequency. So maybe all the taos hum need to be proven is a mass hearing test see.

  5. nice post. thanks.

  6. I was re-reading the ‘Taos Hum’ part of this column, and it occurs to me that there might be a simple explanation of that phenomena. That is, the ‘Taos Hum’ might not be an actual noise, but a trick of radio waves interacting with people’s brains to create the illusion of a high-pitched sound in them. scientists found that some people can ‘hear’ certain frequencies of radio waves as a humming sound in their head. When they first started using UHF (Ultra High Frequency) radio transmissions, this became apparent, and there were suicides by people who were so sensitive to the UHF radio waves that the humming ‘noise’ in their heads drove them mad. Recently, when the U.S. Navy developed an ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) radio transmission system to communicate with submarine crews very deep under the ocean, only ELF waves can penetrate over a mile of sea water depth to contact them, the same thing occurred to people, who figured out that the Navy was buzzing their brains and driving them mad, etc. and they asked them to stop using ELF transmissions. This was on a Discovery Channel show a few years ago. The Navy said they had to continue using it for national security, so they were out of luck! I’m no expert, but what if this is empirical evidence, that we have souls, since the radio waves are interacting with our energy essence inside our skulls? But this thing might explain the Taos Hum, because that place might be situated over a magnetic vortice point of the Earth’s magnetic field, and that vortice might be emitting UHF or ELF radio waves periodically, a natural phenomena we haven’t fully researched yet, and that may be creating this humming noise in some people’s heads.

    Hi Robert,
    quite possibly this may be the alternate explanation to the phenomenon but there was nothing detected like UHF or ELF. I admit there should be such type of waves generated from specific architectural design and wind flow. Else you have said. Thanks for your nice and informative comment.
